I surrender all...

Sunday is homecoming for my parents Church. I haven't sung in a while - for many reasons. Lisa and I sung several songs last year and this year I have the soundtrack for I surrender all. I saw it in my box and kept passing over it when looking for something to sing. Every time I did...when I started looking again it would stick out. I pulled it out and put it in the cd player and it skipped and crackled and I took it out and somehow there was a dent in the CD. I almost threw it away. The last track was the one I sang to and something urged me to put it back in and see if it would work. The only track on the CD that worked was that one.

I practiced a few times, it is a familiar song so I didn't think I would need much practicing. Then a thought came to me...I haven't sung with mom in a long time, her and I could harmonize on this and it be a surprise for dad and the church. I asked her today and she was soooo excited. I am going there tomorrow to practice it with her. Scott has a class tomorrow night so I will stay all day pretty much.

I surrender All

All to Jesus I surrender
All to Him I freely give
I will ever love and trust him
In his presence daily live

I surrender all, I surrender all
All to Thee my blessed Savior
I surrender all

All to Jesus I surrender
At thy feet I humble bow
Worldly pleasures all forsaken
Take me, Jesus, Take me now

All to Jesus I surrender
Lord, I give myself to thee
Fill me with thy love and power
Let thy blessing fall on me

This song means so much to me. The first time I went to the altar at Grand Strand this song was being sung. I recommitted my life to God and surrendered it all. Just lately have I started giving things up to Him again. My infertility, my pain, family issues, financial things are the big things that I have tried to 'fix' myself.

I have started to feel the peace that I am going to be ok, everything will be ok. Something extraordinary is about to happen in my life!



  1. Surrender. Pure Surrender. Sometimes it's hard. Thank you for this post today! I needed it!!!!!!

  2. Thanks for your comment on my site and for your beautiful post.

    There are some days when I am so strong in my faith and I ~know~ God wants me to be a mother. I pray for a child, but I also pray for patience with His plan. Some days I struggle with the patience. I really appreciate this post.

  3. I love that song. I hope the singing goes well.

  8. I've never heard that song before, but I'm telling you that I got shivers when I read it. Serious shivers.
